this week the 5000m was invitational only, and the women's standard was sub-18:30. i was the slowest runner on the heat sheet by far, even with a seed time of 18:00. they combined the men's and women's races, and there were 15 competitors total. start time was ~9:30pm.

i was okay with being the caboose. i thought i would just latch on to the back and stay as close as possible, thinking that it would pull me to a faster time than last week. one lap in and i realized i was in over my head. the woman closest to me was running 85s, and i was already falling back. after two laps i knew i couldn't hang (and i also knew i was in trouble for starting too fast).

the final 10 laps were nothing but tailspin and pain, and i closed the last 1.1 miles nearly ~19 seconds slower than last week. i put up both week's cumulative splits for comparison. lastweekallie was so much smarter. 

i finished the race a solid 250 meters behind everyone else, and i think every guy in the race lapped me. i ran in lane two for most of the last mile. courtesy cheers, y'all.

despite the flop of a race, i pushed myself harder than if i had done a workout on my own, and i got a bit more experience racing on the track. it was also a good reminder of how important it is to keep it realistic and run within myself, especially early on in the race.

final note -- these meets are awesome (and they are free). there is so much participation and enthusiasm. one of last night's main events was the 400m dash (35 heats!). they had everything from 3 year old kiddies to 90 year old grannies. it's so great.
